March 18, 2019 - China

A.Celli will supply two new ‘Iridium mod. 8105’ printing machines to Chinese company Foshan Huahan Sanitary Material, specialists in flexo printing process of baby diapers. The machines will be installed in Foshan’s branch in December 2019. Using A.Celli Iridium press, Foshan can quickly respond to customers’ production needs for short and long runs.

Among other features, the A.Celli ‘Iridium mod. 8105’ is equipped with the new A.Celli Nexus film re-winder patented by A.Celli nonwovens allowing the automatic alignment of the multi slitting and core device with the printing path, said A.Celli in a media statement. This solution minimises the set up time and waste during the start up. The patented splice device, installed on A.Celli Nexus film re-winder, allows optimised splice without tape and reduce the waste to zero during the doffing cycle.

In addition, the machine incorporates quick job changes, automatic fast job set up, an automatic washing system, 100 per cent video camera that includes quality control and dynamic repeat length adjustment and controls that reduce waste due to inhomogeneous material.

A.Celli ‘Iridium mod. 8105’ drying system is designed to improve environmental protection and energy savings, and can switch from solvent-based to water-based inks to meet the trend of green production and zero volatile organic compound (VOC) emission. Maintenance is easier and more accessible, as the machine incorporates an automatic CI washing system and it is possible to disassemble the drying boxes from the side for cleaning.

A.Celli Iridium HMIs give relevant production information on a user friendly data screen.

The platform for Industry 4.0, developed by Extreme Automation (an A.Celli group company), includes information such as daily job tasks, printing job length completed and roll printed, machine down time, and it enables the implementation of remote troubleshooting, a wide range of predictive maintenance programmes and e-service which improves the uptime.
